Design for Living

This can only be considered, from what one gathers from the illustration, a Hollywood Pattern in that it might in fact have been designed with Dorothy Arzner in mind.

Actually, I find it rather touching, somehow, that at least some lesbians of the 1930s stayed home and tailored their own mannish clothing.


  1. this reminds me of katherine hepburn." manly yes,but i like it too."

  2. I believe these patterns were inspired by Judy Garland's wardrobe in Summer Stock.
